SUPERMAESTRO Serial Number 29894
Dear Accordion Friends,
This is a gorgeous accordion in
excellent condition. It is so difficult to find one of these classic
Dallape instruments from the early 1950s with Giovanni Gola's
original tuning. The interior is generously polished. The serial
number is proudly engraved or stamped on the back of the accordion,
each reed block, the tone chamber, bellows frame, and many metal
parts. The tone is powerful with both intensity and overtones. Even
though the accordion looks new it plays without any effort.

people mistaken hand-made reeds with hand-riveted reeds. Please, note
that Dallape used machines for
initial punch of the rivets. Then after precise voicing the riveting was
finished by hand. Dallape reeds never
loose rivets which was a typical problem with many other famous reed
tongues were truly hand-made. They hold the voicing and tuning over many
genuine hand-made piccolo reeds. Please, observe closely all the
best reed makes of today can't make these reeds so precisely for the
highest octave piccolo range.
